Benjamin House is an assisted-living residence for the mentally challenged, offering residents viable lifestyle options while strengthening their ties with family, church and community.

Up to now, parents of some have had to find communal homes outside of the region, distancing their children from friends and supporters. Other parents have had to put their young adults into homes within the region that had only a limited number of program choices. Often this has resulted in residents moving from home to home after short periods of time, resulting in a transient life style ill suited to personal growth.

(Watch and listen as Fred Moncla, Chairman of the Board and President of Benjamin House, speaks on the Need for such a facility.)

More About the Benjamin House

Benjamin House offers innovative programs that give each resident, his family, and circle of friends, options in interests and lifestyles. Residents are encouraged to play an active part within the fabric of the community, to belong to a congregation, have a wide circle of friends and play an active role in family life: to fully achieve their potential. They enjoy a safe-haven for life with a caring and expert staff to monitor and help each of them. As they grow and age, programs will change with them to accommodate new interests and social climates.

Life within the residence is both comfortable and flexible. With help and mentoring, each resident has individual freedom to form his or her own lifestyle… and change with the times. For once, the most needy among us are not be denied freedom of choice.

Families no longer have the problems of trying to cope alone. They can remain close and active, continuing to support and help while being assured of a continuation of care.

Be an angel. Help support Benjamin House.
